REVIEW: The Loyal Heart by Shelley Shepard Gray

About the Book

Robert came to Galveston to fulfill his promise to a dying man and look after his widow. He didn’t expect to find love in the unlikeliest of places.

Robert Truax, former Second Lieutenant and Confederate officer in the Civil War, made a promise to his comrade Phillip Markham. If anything happened to Phillip, Robert would look after his beloved wife, Miranda. She was his life, his world, his everything.

After the war, Robert is left to pick up the pieces and fulfill his pact. When he arrives at Miranda's home in Galveston, Texas, things are worse than he imagined. Phillip's name has been dragged through the mud, everyone in town believes him to be a traitor, and his widow is treated as an outcast. Even more disturbing is her emotional well-being. Miranda seems hopeless, lost, and so very alone. 

Robert had thought his duty would be simple. He would help Miranda as quickly as possible in order to honor a promise. But the moment Robert laid eyes on her, his plans changed. He's mesmerized by her beauty and yearns to help her in any way he can.

He makes it his duty to protect Miranda, turn her reputation around, and to find some way to help her smile again. But it doesn't prove to be an easy task—Robert knows something about Phillip that could shake Miranda to the core and alter her view of the man she thought she knew so well. 

My Review

Post Civil-War, romance, mystery, and more is what you will find in Shelley Shepard Gray's newest release, The Loyal Heart. Miranda, the heroine of this story, lost her husband Phillip in a prison camp. Her mother and sister are trying to take her home away from her. Her mother and sister are pretty mean and nasty and if I were Miranda I would have removed them from my life completely. Enter Second Lieutenant and Confederate Officer Robert, who is trying to help Miranda in any possible way. Robert also happens to be an old friend and comrade of her late husband Phillip. It's going around town that Phillip was not a hero, but a traitor to his country. Can Miranda and Robert clear Phillip's name or will his reputation and name be forever tarnished. The Loyal Heart is the perfect book for fans of Historical Romance.
